Harassment and Nondiscrimination


Harassment and Nondiscrimination

Point Loma Nazarene University adheres to all federal, state, and local civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in employment and education.  Point Loma Nazarene University does not discriminate in its admissions practices except as permitted by law, in its employment practices, or in its educational programs or activities on the basis of sex. As a recipient of federal financial assistance for education activities, Point Loma Nazarene University is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to ensure that all of its education programs and activities do not discriminate on the basis of sex.

Point Loma Nazarene University also prohibits retaliation against any person opposing discrimination or participating in any discrimination investigation or complaint process internal or external to the institution. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX and by Point Loma Nazarene University policy.

Any member of the campus community, guest, or visitor who acts to deny, deprive, or limit the educational, employment, residential, or social access, opportunities and/or benefits of any member of the Point Loma Nazarene University community on the basis of sex is in violation of the Harassment and Nondiscrimination policy.

Any person may report sex discrimination (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to have experienced the conduct), in person, by mail, by telephone, by video, or by email, using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator (below). A report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by phone or email. A report may also be submitted using the following link: Incident Reporting Form

Questions regarding Title IX, including its application and/or concerns about noncompliance, should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator. For a complete copy of the policy or for more information, please visit [web link currently being updated] or contact the Title IX Coordinator.
